Barbados

One day in Barbados

What to say about Barbados, it is one of the most famous Caribbean Islands. It is known as a hot spot for the rich and powerful. We were told a lot about some residence of someone famous, and were shown where Rihanna grew up. Unfortunately that meant we did not have enough time at Bathsheba.
Barbados seemed a lot more expensive to me than the other Caribbean Islands, I also didn’t take any souvenirs. My mum took some rum, however as it is made from imported sugar cane molasses for me it wasn’t the right country to buy rum from. I took quite a few photos to make up for the lacking souvenir.

Harrison’s Cave

You take a train through the cave, which stops at the most interesting spots for photos.

Animal Flower Cave

It is a sea cave that gets its name from small animals (sea anemone) that look like flowers.

There are only two intact sugar mills on the Islands. One is the Morgan Lewis Mill on Barbados

Bathsheba – the soup bowl

It’s a nice spot for surfers however photographers will like the rock formations.

Cherry Hill Tree is the highest point of the island with a nice view over the east coast.
We were told than in Barbados most of the crop damage is done by monkeys. We even saw a monkey damaging a papaya before it saw us and fled without eating it. What a waste. Hopefully it came back later.

Of cause Barbados has a lot of beautiful beaches including Horse Shoe Bay Beach, Freights Bay and Worthing Beach. Crane Bach is a hidden beach cove.
Bridgetown is the capital and largest city in Barbados with St. Michael Cathedral.
